This simple sugar scrub will help you get rid of dead skin cells, improve circulation, minimize the appearance of cellulite, prevent ingrown hair, and result in generally smooth and healthy-looking skin.
Made with simple ingredients and in just a few minutes you can have a fantastic scrub.
All you need is:
- 2/3 cup of coconut oil
- 1 cup brown sugar (you can use any sugar you have lying around)
- 5 drops of your favorite essential oil
Warm the coconut oil to room temperature if it's solid and mix it with the sugar and the essential oil that suits your mood (think lavender for relaxation, orange, or lemon for energizing). Store in a glass jar and use as required.
Don't overheat the coconut oil as it will melt the sugar if too hot. When using the scrub, pay special attention to dry areas, like your elbows and heels as well as your legs and thighs for a bit of lymphatic drainage.
